Seamless Barcode Scanning Capabilities In Detrack App
Previously, we have shared about how barcode capabilities can be integrated easily with our Detrack App. Now, the good news for barcode users is that our IT team has taken a step further to integrate this into the Detrack App.
In this latest release of the Detrack App (live in Google Play and soon to go live in iTunes), we have included an extension that enables your drivers to capture barcode serial numbers by scanning barcodes. To enable the barcode scanning feature for Detrack, all you need to do is install this free Barcode Scanner app by ZXING alongside with Detrack onto the same phone (both via Google Play). Once downloaded, Detrack App’s proof of delivery will work seamlessly with the barcode scanning app without your drivers having to open any other apps.
One of our users is using this barcode scanning capability to scan item serial numbers for automated warranty registration i.e. upon delivery, driver scans item serial number and this information is fed back into their warranty registration system. Another of our user is using it as a proof of collection by scanning the barcode of the parcels picked up to match them with the collection orders. Of course another way to use this is that for e.g. you are expecting cargo of 12 parcels of a certain good in a pallet, you add 12 items to the delivery / collection and then use our per item barcode scanning capability to capture the barcode serial numbers. In this way, which exact item (based on serial numbers) are delivered / collected will be captured accurately.
The barcode scanning functions has been designed to be flexible to fit the way you work. Get creative and use our new barcode scanning capabilities to complement your workflow.
